Chris Glover became Penguin Prison at the start of 2009. It wasn't long before he earned a reputation as remixer du jour for the likes of Marina and the Diamonds, Goldfrapp and Passion Pit. He agrees that he conferred NY kudos especially on the British artists, and admits his favorite remix was for Jamiroquai, adding that the secret to a good remix is "to throw everything away from the original track and start from scratch". Penguin Prison is signed to Downtown Records.

From its humble beginnings in 2002 as a small birthday party for a few friends, Booty Bassment has grown into one of California's best dance parties. Veteran DJs Dimitri Dickinson and Ryan Poulsen have turned this night into a success with monthly installments in San Diego, San Francisco, and Portland.
ALL-AGES! Since January 2009, Friends of Family Farmers has hosted InFARMation (and Beer!) each month in Portland. This is an opportunity to bring the issues that Oregon family farmers face onto the radar of urban consumers, and the community in general. The topic changes each month, but always focuses on the larger picture of the connection between food and farms in our state. When eaters connect with farmers, it makes our food web stronger, and real changes in our local food system are possible. InFARMation (and Beer!) is always free and open to the public, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 5:30-8:30pm.

Recently, it has become more apparent that the homeless population has been overlooked, meaning that we, as individuals and a community, actually DON'T LOOK as we walk by. Or, this may mean that we may look, but don't SEE homeless individuals as the possibilities that they are, but rather as a group of people trapped in an endpoint. Of course, there are the loveliest of exceptions, but the aim of this project is to expand these exceptions into a growing awareness in our communities, to further the quality of life and possibilities in the growing homeless population.
SNAPSHOT is a project celebrating the individuality, promise, creativity, and love in a population living outside the walls. The aim is to empower and inspire homeless individuals, to remind them and their surrounding community that their current situation needs only to be a transition if they are seeking it, that they are worth listening to and supporting through to the next phase of their life.
The possibilities of this project are inspiration, self-worth, and connection.
Documentary: 5 mini-documentaries, each filmed by different groups in different cities on the west coast, strung together and set to local music. Each group will be given a set of questions to ask, though these are merely a guideline. Filmmakers are strongly encouraged to follow their subject into what really lights them up and expand upon it.
The film will be screened at this benefit show. Proceeds will benefit P:ear, a local organization helping to further the advancement of homeless youth through mentorship. The documentary will be divided into 3 segments to be screened in between bands.

The stomping, storming sounds of American roots music are laid down at 45rpm, all night until the sweaty end. Six years strong, this truly legendary dancefloor institution has moved to Holocene and takes place every second Thursday. Expect the same jubilant ruckus you've come to know and love, refreshingly reinvented within Holocene's walls. Our space will be decorated with love and care just for the occasion, with an eye for that sharp, sexy mod style. We invite all of you dapper gents and stylish ladies to dress to impress on our dancefloor.
Thanks to the deep crates and incomparable prowess of DJ Beyondadoubt, this party is popping from the very first record laid down. Hailing from Memphis, Beyondadoubt was raised on Dirty South bass music, Soul, Gospel, regional Southern Rap and Bounce music. Channeling these roots and employing her collection of rare and vintage vinyl, this nationally renowned career DJ of over a decade takes us on a journey deep into the fiercely raw emotional landscape of Soul and Rhythm & Blues. Get into it.
